Hill Country is a tribute to the traditional Central Texas barbecue experience, Southern Hospitality and the artistry of Downtown Austin.

Our Story

Warm memories of barbecue joints and family meals combined with the creative spirit and live music he enjoyed over years of summertime family gatherings inspired founder Marc Glosserman to share his Hill Country experiences with the world. Marc, with his wife and partner Kristen, launched Hill Country Barbecue Market NYC in 2007, and opened in Washington DC in 2011.

The Hill Country of Texas

Everything we do connects back to this amazing Central Texas geographic and cultural mash-up. We serve the best of both the traditions and charm of the rolling, green countryside and the urban sophistication and energy of downtown Austin.

Our meats are dry-rubbed and smoked low and slow over Post Oak wood imported from Texas and our sides and desserts include family recipes and new interpretations.

We stock our bars with Texas-inspired cocktails, creative margaritas, and of course American whiskeys, fine Tequilas and rotating a beer menu.

Our Texas roots date back four generations. Marc’s grandfather was the mayor of Lockhart, the “Barbecue Capital of Texas” and he proudly comes from a long line of Texas Matriarchs with exceptional Southern Cooking skills.


We are aware of our impact on our community and always try to make it as positive and inclusive as we can. We’re proud to support the organizations and partners below.
